I trained like an animal, but the thing is focus and concentration. When the bell rings it's like when the little red light goes on over the camera. And I can usually nail my lines on the first or second take because I'm right there. ~ Mickey Rourke
Firsts quotes by Mickey Rourke
Recognizing that something is wrong is the first step toward changing the world. ~ Shane Claiborne
Firsts quotes by Shane Claiborne
Thus you may multiply each stone 4 times & no more for they will then become oyles shining in ye dark and fit for magicall uses. You may ferment them with gold and silver, by keeping the stone and metal in fusion together for a day, & then project upon metalls. This is the multiplication of ye stone in vertue. To multiply it in weight ad to it of ye first Gold whether philosophic or vulgar. ~ Isaac Newton
Firsts quotes by Isaac Newton

I opened the Woodstock Festival even though I was supposed to be fifth. I said, 'What am I doing here? No, no, not me, not first!' I had to go on stage because there was no one else to go on first - the concert was already two-and-a-half hours late. ~ Richie Havens
Firsts quotes by Richie Havens

Firsts quotes by Alice James
Dullness is the first requisite of a good husband. ~ W. Somerset Maugham
Firsts quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
Here's the thing - the accent is cool. It's like a girl with big breasts - they get your attention first. ~ Kevin Costner
Firsts quotes by Kevin Costner
Kitsch is: a species of beauty, which, as it is florid and superficial, pleases at first; but soon palls upon the taste, and is rejected with disdain, at least rated at much lower value. ~ David Hume
Firsts quotes by David Hume
My first job was baby-sitting. I had a great time because I love kids. Sometimes, when I'm having a bad day, I'm like: "Oh, you know what? I'm going to chuck it in and become a kindergarten teacher!" ~ Anne Hathaway
Firsts quotes by Anne Hathaway
Ours must be the first age whose great goal, on a nonmaterial plane, is not fulfillment but adjustment; and perhaps just such a goal has served as maladjustment's weapon. ~ Louis Kronenberger
Firsts quotes by Louis Kronenberger
We've taken disturbances and fluctuations and averaged them together to give us comfortable statistics. Our training has been to look for big numbers, important trends, major variances. Yet it is the slight variations - soft-spoken, even whispered at first - that we need to encourage. ~ Margaret J. Wheatley
Firsts quotes by Margaret J. Wheatley
There are several different kinds of painful feelings that we might experience, and learning to distinguish and relate to these feelings of discomfort or pain is an important part of meditation practice, because it is one of the very first things that we open to as our practice develops. ~ Jack Kornfield
Firsts quotes by Jack Kornfield
In order to be created, a work of art must first make use of the dark forces of the soul ~ Albert Camus

Firsts quotes by Steve Daines
When I first filmed things, they were always slightly awkward. ~ Ralph Fiennes

Coming in second place just means you were the first person to lose ... ~ Jeff Hawkins
Firsts quotes by Jeff Hawkins
There's lots of people my age (and younger) that have grown up in chaotic environments and I just happen to be one of the first ones to make it to pro sports. It's more a societal thing than an athletics thing. ~ Chris Kluwe
Firsts quotes by Chris Kluwe
I remember reading Paul Fussell my first year teaching at U of Hawai'i and being like, oh, it has a turn! Why didn't anyone tell me? ~ Juliana Spahr
Firsts quotes by Juliana Spahr
To do anything, it is first necessary to be doing nothing. ~ Nancy Hale
Firsts quotes by Nancy Hale
Honey, you [Michael Jackson] gotta pick a race first. All of a sudden you're a black man, then you're Diana Ross, now you're Audrey Hepburn. Then he's got the little beard going on. He's like Lord of the Rings, the entire cast. Michael's about to jump species. ~ Robin Williams
Firsts quotes by Robin Williams
Adversity is a call to action, and your freedom lies in taking the first step. Don't worry about the entire staircase, just take one step, and then tomorrow take another. ~ Kris Carr
Firsts quotes by Kris Carr
My first novel was rejected by some of the most eminent publishers in the world. Starting again was a real wrench. ~ Wilbur Smith
Firsts quotes by Wilbur Smith
I'm an Air Force officer first, a pilot second and then Nicole. The female part is last ... My job is to be the best right wingman that I can be. ~ Nicole Malachowski
Firsts quotes by Nicole Malachowski

Firsts quotes by John James Audubon
The first billion is a helluva lot harder. ~ T. Boone Pickens
Firsts quotes by T. Boone Pickens
To put on the garment of legitimacy is the first aim of every coup. ~ Barbara Tuchman
Firsts quotes by Barbara Tuchman
Yeah, we shot ourselves in the foot right out of the gate. The guy who ran it at first misled pretty much everybody about how much capital we had. He said we had enough to go three years without making money, and we had enough to go three weeks. ~ Al Franken
Firsts quotes by Al Franken
You mustn't rely on your flowers to make your garden attractive. A good bone structure must come first, with an intelligent use of evergreen plants so that the garden is always clothed, no matter what time of year. Flowers are an added delight, but a good garden is the garden you enjoy looking at even in the depths of winter. ~ Margery Fish
Firsts quotes by Margery Fish
I mean, you can't have sex until you're married if you're Mormon. The first time I had sex, my parents found out. They were listening in on the phone while I was talking about sex to my girlfriend. They freaked out, man. They both cornered me in my bedroom. ~ Bert McCracken
Firsts quotes by Bert McCracken
So many American plays are about family. When you're in the first part of your life, you write about family a lot. I find with my absurdist plays that I was actually writing about my family, but so disguised I didn't realize it myself. ~ Christopher Durang
Firsts quotes by Christopher Durang
I like when people wear a WWJD bracelet, because it's like an example of the first thing Jesus wouldn't do, probably. ~ Demetri Martin
Firsts quotes by Demetri Martin
I don't usually fly in first class, but I fart in first class. ~ Demetri Martin
Firsts quotes by Demetri Martin
You want to defend citizenship? Don't persecute or isolate those without papers. Just live like a citizen. That'd be a first-class way to be American. ~ Eric Liu
Firsts quotes by Eric Liu
If man made himself the first object of study, he would see how incapable he is of going further. How can a part know the whole? ~ Blaise Pascal
Firsts quotes by Blaise Pascal
Almost all first ladies have had tremendous power on personnel issues, whether the public realized it or not, whether it was Barbara Bush or Nancy Reagan or whoever. ~ Dee Dee Myers
Firsts quotes by Dee Dee Myers
You may be trying to attain power in this world, then you start trying to attain power in that world. First you want to attain wealth in this world, then you try to attain wealth in that world. But you remain the same, and the mind and the functioning and the whole scheme remains the same: Attain! Reach! This is the ego trip. The achieving mind is the ego. ~ Rajneesh
Firsts quotes by Rajneesh
I was six years old when I saw my first Godard movie, eight when I first experienced Bergman. I wanted to be a director when I was fourteen. ~ Julie Delpy
Firsts quotes by Julie Delpy
My strength is basically my get off. It is overpowering. I can get after the quarterback on first, second and third down. I pride myself on being an every down guy. ~ Darius Philon
Firsts quotes by Darius Philon
Every photo, every 'ONCE' in time is also the beginning of a story starting 'once upon a time ... ' Every photo is the first frame of a movie. ~ Wim Wenders
Firsts quotes by Wim Wenders
Behind every individual closes organization; before him opens liberty,
the Better, the Best. The first and worse races are dead.The second and imperfect races are dying out, or remain for the maturing of the higher. In the latest race, in man, every generosity, every new perception, the love and praise he extorts from his fellows, are certificates of advance out of fate into freedom. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Firsts quotes by Ralph Waldo Emerson
I'll never forget my first time with you' Min said as she edged the doughnut off her finger. 'The earth moved, and then my mother asked my father who he was going down on at lunch. ~ Jennifer Crusie
Firsts quotes by Jennifer Crusie
I am grateful to theatre for making me what I am today. But it's not like theatre is my first love. I am equally attached to cinema, which is, actually, a child of theatre, since it borrows heavily from it. ~ Om Puri
Firsts quotes by Om Puri
I've been singing since I was two. Music was my first passion and I love writing, singing, creating and being creative. ~ Jojo
Firsts quotes by Jojo
In wonder all philosophy began, in wonder it ends, and admiration fill up the interspace; but the first wonder is the offspring of ignorance, the last is the parent of adoration. ~ Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Firsts quotes by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
It seemed to Scobie that life was immeasurably long. Couldn't the test of man have been carried out in fewer years? Couldn't we have committed our first major sin at seven, have ruined ourselves for love or hate at ten, have clutched at redemption on a fifteen-year-old deathbed? ~ Graham Greene
Firsts quotes by Graham Greene
What is there? I know first of all that I am. But who am I? All I know of myself is that I suffer. And if I suffer it is because at the origin of myself there is mutilation, separation. I am separated. What I am separated from
I cannot name it. But I am separated. ~ Arthur Adamov
Firsts quotes by Arthur Adamov
Be demanding of the world around you; be demanding first of all with yourselves. Be children of God; take pride in it! ~ Pope John Paul II
Firsts quotes by Pope John Paul II
Be unselfish. That is the first and final commandment for those who would be useful and happy in their usefulness. If you think of yourself only, you cannot develop because you are choking the source of development, which is spiritual expansion through thought for others. ~ Charles William Eliot
Firsts quotes by Charles William Eliot
To say that the cosmos was expanding is equally to say that its members were contracting. The ultimate centers of power, each at first coincident ... themselves generated the cosmical space by their disengagement from each other. ~ Olaf Stapledon
Firsts quotes by Olaf Stapledon
If something is wrong with anyone, look first to the stomach. ~ Arnold Ehret
Firsts quotes by Arnold Ehret
The things required for prosperous labor, prosperous manufactures, and prosperous commerce are three. First, liberty; second, liberty; third, liberty. ~ Henry Ward Beecher
Firsts quotes by Henry Ward Beecher
Use a screwdriver instead of a hammer. Try to untighten the nut with your hand. Utilize the path of least resistance first. ~ Tim Allen
Firsts quotes by Tim Allen
We've had one of these before, when the dot-com bubble burst. What I told our company was that we were just going to invest our way through the downturn, that we weren't going to lay off people, that we'd taken a tremendous amount of effort to get them into Apple in the first place; the last thing we were going to do is lay them off. ~ Steve Jobs
Firsts quotes by Steve Jobs
I think sometimes an artist can really lose sight of what made them popular in the first place. ~ Chris Lowe
Firsts quotes by Chris Lowe
If the world had two gods, it would surely go to ruin-this is the first premise. Now it is known that it has not gone to ruin-this is the second premise. From these premises the conclusion must of necessity follow, that is, the denial of two gods. ~ Al-Ghazali
Firsts quotes by Al-Ghazali
What sort of personality does one need to have, as a twenty-first-century mechanic, to tolerate the layers of electronic bullshit that get piled on top of machines? ~ Matthew B. Crawford
Firsts quotes by Matthew B. Crawford
The first language that I learned was Italian in Italy in the early and middle-'60s and I had to do that to keep up with the young men who were courting my wife. ~ Clive James
Firsts quotes by Clive James
The first step toward spiritual growth is to become aware of your emotions. ~ Gary Zukav
Firsts quotes by Gary Zukav
I make one image - though 'make' is not the right word; I let, perhaps, an image be 'made' emotionally in me and then apply to it what intellectual & critical forces I possess - let it breed another, let that image contradict the first, make, of the third image bred out of the other two together, a fourth contradictory image, and let them all, within my imposed formal limits, conflict. ~ Dylan Thomas
Firsts quotes by Dylan Thomas
Henry, this isn't about us. I mean it is, but they don't define you by the button you wear. They define you by what you do, by what your actions say about you. And coming here, despite your parents, says a lot to them- and me. And they're Americans first. They don't see you as the enemy. They see you as a person. ~ Jamie Ford
Firsts quotes by Jamie Ford
Gregory Peck is the hottest thing in town. Some say he is a second Gary Cooper. Actually, he is the first Gregory Peck. ~ Gregory Peck
Firsts quotes by Gregory Peck
What attracted me to Zen was my first teacher, Tim McCarthy. He was extremely genuine. It wasn't even really a Zen thing, that sort of came along later. ~ Brad Warner
Firsts quotes by Brad Warner
As a kid, I was always listening to music. I would just go in to my room and put on an album, read the lyrics, and just spend hours and hours in there. Plus, my sister Laurie played piano (in fact she taught me my first few notes) so music was always around one way or another. ~ Andrew Hollander
Firsts quotes by Andrew Hollander
In love, first please the eye, then win the heart. ~ Norm MacDonald
Firsts quotes by Norm MacDonald
That first movie I did, Lucas [1986], was probably the closest to me. And Beetlejuice a little bit, in the sense that I did look like that. All they did was like put a little white powder here. ~ Winona Ryder
Firsts quotes by Winona Ryder
After fifteen years of facing them (pitchers) you don't really get over them. They're devious. They're the only players in the game allowed to cheat. They throw illegal pitches and they sneak foreign substances on the ball. They can inflict pain whenever they wish. And, they're the only ones on the diamond who have high ground. That's symbolic. You know what they tell you in a war - 'take the high ground first.' ~ Richie Ashburn
Firsts quotes by Richie Ashburn
I first heard the term "meta-novel" at a writer's conference in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The idea is that even though each book in a series stands alone, when read collectively they form one big ongoing novel about the main character. Each book represents its own arc: in book one of the series we meet the character and establish a meta-goal that will carry him through further books, in book two that meta-goal is tested, in book three - you get the picture. ~ Carolyn Wheat
Firsts quotes by Carolyn Wheat
But, I think it's great to be able to work with established directors, and then also first-timers. I feel like you learn from both of them, but then you can go and share your knowledge with each of them. That's really fantastic! ~ Juno Temple
Firsts quotes by Juno Temple
In silence all our usual patterns assault us ... That is why most people give up rather quickly. When Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, the first things to show up were the wild beasts. ~ Richard Rohr
Firsts quotes by Richard Rohr
My mom thought I might be good for voiceover. She thought I had a cute voice, so maybe I could do a cartoon or something. And while we were looking into that, we also thought I should get into theater acting, so I tried it and the first audition I went on, I booked it. And it kind of just snowballed from there. ~ Atticus Shaffer
Firsts quotes by Atticus Shaffer
In my whole career, in fact, I can remember only two first nights when a show was at its peak on the first night. And I just wish we could devise a system where critics came not on a single evening but were given a choice of performances to attend. ~ Richard McCabe
Firsts quotes by Richard McCabe
The whole point of a sacrifice is that you give up something you never really wanted in the first place. People are doing it around you all the time. They give up their careers, say - or their beliefs - or sex. ~ John Osborne
Firsts quotes by John Osborne
The joy of 'Crash' was that it was all about the work. It was my first real part. Before that, it was a line here and there, maybe a scene. 'Crash' was five scenes, a beautiful arc, a little vignette of my own. It really meant something. ~ Michael Pena
Firsts quotes by Michael Pena
All that we are and all that we've ever felt, words have felt it first. ~ Kiki Dimoula
Firsts quotes by Kiki Dimoula
You have to think about good storytelling and characters first. Then hopefully, the rest of that stuff will follow, some more than others. But if you don't have a good film and strong characters, then you don't have anything down the road. ~ Pete Docter
Firsts quotes by Pete Docter
In production, in the first couple of weeks of production, that it was more like making an internet musical. ~ Joss Whedon
Firsts quotes by Joss Whedon
Before something can become a habit it must first be practiced as a discipline. ~ Ken Blanchard
Firsts quotes by Ken Blanchard
The first mistake is trying to explain morality to a terrorist. Like trying to teach a rock to drive. It is impossible. ~ Greg Gutfeld
Firsts quotes by Greg Gutfeld
What were all the world's alarms To mighty Paris when he found Sleep upon a golden bed That first dawn in Helen's arms? ~ William Butler Yeats
Firsts quotes by William Butler Yeats
Inertia is the first law of history, as it is of physics. ~ Morris Raphael Cohen
Firsts quotes by Morris Raphael Cohen
Twitter, Reddit, Tumblr, Instagram, all these companies are businesses first, but, as a close second, they're demographers of unprecedented reach, thoroughness, and importance. Practically as an accident, digital data can now show us how we fight, how we love, how we age, who we are, and how we're changing. All we have to do is look: ~ Christian Rudder
Firsts quotes by Christian Rudder
When I first came into this world, Elvis was already fat. ~ Jane Wagner
Firsts quotes by Jane Wagner
The first rule of discovery is to have brains and good luck. The second rule of discovery is to sit tight and wait till you get a bright idea. ~ George Polya
Firsts quotes by George Polya
I love The Matrix, especially the first one. ~ Cass Sunstein
Firsts quotes by Cass Sunstein
A blaze first pleases and then tires the sight. ~ Samuel Johnson
Firsts quotes by Samuel Johnson
If you are melancholy for the first time, you will find, upon a little inquiry, that others have been melancholy many times, and yet are cheerful now. ~ Leigh Hunt
Firsts quotes by Leigh Hunt
Math was a two-part exam and I once didn't go for the second part. I knew I'd done so badly on the first it was hopeless. I re-took it about four or five times. I think I eventually got it by getting the top GCSE grade. ~ Rob Brydon
Firsts quotes by Rob Brydon
Hence, a generative grammar must be a system of rules that can iterate to generate an indefinitely large number of structures. This system of rules can be analyzed into the three major components of a generative grammar: the syntactic, phonological, and semantic components ... the syntactic component of a grammar must specify, for each sentence, a deep structure that determines its semantic interpretation and a surface structure that determines its phonetic interpretation. The first of these is interpreted by the semantic component; the second, by the phonological component. ~ Noam Chomsky
Firsts quotes by Noam Chomsky
The first time I made myself up, I was looking at my reflection in the mirror and it wasn't me looking back. It allowed me to do things I couldn't do as myself. I found out how powerful that was and how much that can mean to an actor. ~ Rick Baker
Firsts quotes by Rick Baker
Fundamentals in the gaming sector remained relatively healthy during the first quarter. ~ Brian Gordon
Firsts quotes by Brian Gordon
The first day's always the hardest, because it moves so much faster than a film does and once you get into that rhythm, though, you feel like you've accomplished so much in such a short period of time, so there a bit of comfort in that. You just have to find your rhythm. ~ Jaimie Alexander
Firsts quotes by Jaimie Alexander
Generally speaking, I am not interested in the future and don't believe in it. First, I guess it is true that I don't trust the future, but, more to the point, I don't even trust the "myself" of tomorrow, nor, for that matter, of the day after. Basically, all I know, and all I am capable of understanding, is the "me" that is here, now, the "me" that has dragged his past with him to this point. ~ Yohji Yamamoto
Firsts quotes by Yohji Yamamoto
The law is simple. Every experience is repeated or suffered till you experience it properly and fully the first time. ~ Ben Okri
Firsts quotes by Ben Okri
I remember being cast in the first "Harry Potter" film and being quite amused, because I was imagining that someone who'd been acting since they'd been crawling would be cast. The faith and trust that they'd put into everyone actually enabled you to gain confidence back, in the sense of feeling that sense of achievement, which is incredibly hard when you're young. ~ Bonnie Wright
Firsts quotes by Bonnie Wright
Mussolini is quite humiliated because our troops have not moved a step forward. Even today they have not succeeded in advancing and have halted in front of the first French fortification which put up some resistance. ~ Galeazzo Ciano
Firsts quotes by Galeazzo Ciano
Unless souls are saved, nothing is saved; there can be no world peace without soul peace. ~ Fulton J. Sheen
